Summer Teen Volunteer Program
Please be advised that the Teen Volunteer Summer Program at Duncan Regional Hospital is officially cancelled for this summer. We feel that there is too much uncertainty right now about the COVID-19 Pandemic and as a hospital, we will be trying hard to get back to normal operations all summer.
Our first priority is the safety of our patients and staff. We regret having to make this decision, but do not want to take any risks having the teens here. Please help us spread the word if you know of anyone planning to participate in the program this summer.
Any questions may be directed to Betty Beck, CAVS, Director of Volunteer Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 580.251-8495.
